Audience Waiting for Green Day Show Nails Queen's "Bohemian Rhapsody"

Plus, fans sing to Billie Joe Armstrong outside hotel after separate Green Day show is canceled

July 14, 2017

We can’t imagine what it must feel like to hear 65,000 fans sing along to your music, and what’s even crazier to imagine is that same group of people nailing all the lyrics—from memory.

While waiting for a Green Day show to begin on July 1, the 65,000-strong audience at London’s Hyde Park heard Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody” starting to play through the speakers, and who could resist singing along to that? The crowd absolutely killed it. And while we can’t tell from this stage-shot video, we’re almost certain their air guitars could rival Brian May’s.

 

 

Later that week, Green Day was supposed to play a show at Glasgow’s Bellahouston Park but had to cancel due to severe weather. Below, frontman Billie Joe Armstrong issued a statement regarding the cancellation and points out that he could actually hear fans singing “Still Breathing” outside his hotel room.

While we don’t have that one recorded, we did find one of fans singing “American Idiot” outside the Glasgow hotel—check it out!
